Courses are maintained in the myCourses system for one year after completion.  For long term archiving of course content only (does not include student data), follow the steps in option 2 to export the content to your computer.  (Note: To backup a copy of your course containing student data, see the self-help guide "Backup and Restore A Course During the Semester").
